HP Envy 5540 All-in-One Printer

 

Designed as an inkjet multifunction printer primarily for home use, the HP Envy 5540 All-in-One Printer can print, scan, copy, print through the cloud, and print directly from mobile devices.

Automatic duplexer. Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi Direct. Prints through the cloud. Photo tray for 4-by-6-inch photo paper. Fast photo printing in our tests.

No Ethernet or fax. Lacks an automatic document feeder. Slow for business applications. Installation software and front-panel LCD push hard to sell HP's Instant Ink Program.

Conclusion If you need a printer for a home office, or for the dual role of home and home-office printer, take a look at the Brother MFC-J470DW, which is not only faster than the HP Envy 5540 All-in-One Printer for business applications, but includes...

HP Envy 5540 All-in-One Review

 

The HP Envy 5540 All-in-One prints documents with above-average quality, but it comes with a below-average set of features. The tri-color ink cartridge design forces you to frequently purchase expensive ink refills, while the lack of basic connectivity...

This printer produced some of the best-quality documents in our testing.

An inconvenient three-in-one ink cartridge means you need to replace all of your color inks when only one runs out.

The HP Envy 5540 All-in-One prints documents with category-leading quality, but missing connectivity features and expensive inks keep it from ranking higher.

HP Envy 5540 Review: Inkjet All-in-One with Speed and Style

 

The Envy 5540 is a very good all-around performer, prints graphics quickly, and delivers very high print quality on both plain paper and specialty media. Although copy speeds aren't quick, PDF scans happen in a snap. It doesn't qualify as a small...

Very-high-quality prints and scans ; Prints graphics quickly ; Fast to scan PDFs ; Ink subscription lowers printing costs ; Touch screen works well

2.2-inch touch screen is small ; Photo paper tray is fixed at 4 x 6 inches

High image quality, attractive copies and fast scanning to PDF make the HP Envy 5540 a versatile all-in-one.

HP Envy 5540 All-in-One Printer Review and Ratings

 

This inexpensive, light-duty color inkjet churns out excellent-looking prints, scans, and copies—and, if you commit to Instant Ink, does so at a reasonable cost per page.

Low initial price ; High-quality output ; Easy to set up and use ; Reasonable cost per page (if you subscribe to Instant Ink) ; Wide cloud and mobile-device support ; Duplex printing

Very high cost per page if you don’t opt for Instant Ink ; Comparatively slow ; Uses two-cartridge ink system ; Small input and output trays, with flimsy paper tray ; No ADF, SD-card slot, or USB flash-drive port ; Mono-only LCD

HP Envy 5540 All-in-One Printer review

 

A cheap and cheerful colour inkjet for low volume printing

Lots of features including smartphone support ; Easy to install, configure and use ; Quiet operation

A little on the slow side ; Quite expensive for mono printing

The Envy 5540 is a good budget buy if colour is your priority, but it isn't designed for demanding workplaces.

HP Envy 5540 review

 

A versatile, low-cost printer for the home office – although HP's ink prices may have you scratching your head.

The Envy 5540 is good value for people who need to produce a lot of colour documents or photo prints, and provides good quality for such a low-cost printer. However, simple mono text documents remain relatively expensive and there are cheaper options...

HP Envy 5540 review

  (Rating Hidden)

The HP Envy 5540 is an affordable all-in-one wi-fi printer. It's fairly compact to suit home use and is claimed to keep your ink costs low. We found in our testing that it turns out good looking copies, but it will need to print well and be cheap to...

HP Envy 5540 review

 

A striking bit of design at an eye-catching price; the trade-off is mediocre quality and performance

Excellent print quality; Stylish design;

Tri-colour cartridge design leads to wasted ink; Slow print speeds;

On paper, the HP Envy 5540 looks like a stylish and capable printer for a fantastic price. But print quality and speed don’t match the confidence of the design, and the value proposition gets worse and worse the more you print.

HP Envy 5540 All-In-One Printer Review

 

The HP ENVY 5540 is an All-In-One printer that boasts built-in Wi-Fi, double-siding printing, a 2.2-inch touch screen which makes navigating the printer extremely easy, and also the ability to save money on ink using HP Instant Ink. It retails for less...

Built-in Wi-Fi ; Respectable black / white print speeds ; Low price for a printer of this standard ; Separate paper trays for regular and photo printing ; Instant Ink ready

Rather large ; No USB cable included

All in all, the HP Envy 5540 is the perfect option for students or home office users on a budget. The double-sided print option, which isn’t normally a feature on printers of this price range, works extremely well. With the ability to also produce...
